In or out? Manchester City squad's schoolboy-style shoes and socks

We just can't decide: fashion forward, or a failure of a flashback?

Whenever the Manchester City squad travel, they generally all wear the same outfit as they walk off of the bus and into the game because #squadgoals.

It's safe to say the team's latest look, which they wore before their Sunday game against Bayern Munich (Man City won 3-2) is very fashion forward.

The outfits were designed entirely by Canadian-Italian brand Dsquared, a label run by identical twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten that is known for always pushing taste boundaries. The look for Man City is no exception: is it fashion-forward, or does it just make them look like schoolboys who forgot their PE uniform and so have to wear their school shoes to gym class?

All of the players wore a black T-shirt with Manchester City stamped across their chests in a bold type with plain black shorts and socks pulled up. Most opted for a shiny leather formal shoe, while some went for the more obvious choice of black sneakers.
